FTP Logs

Audit trails (logs) are generated for all FTP sessions in GoAnywhere MFT to meet auditing and compliance requirements. This detail includes commands issued, messages, IP addresses, user ids and file names transferred. Logs can be viewed from within the browser-based administrator, and can be filtered by date range, user name, file name and other criteria. Log messages can additionally be sent to a SYSLOG server using UDP or TCP connections.
